Hemingway once shared that, “The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.” Is it the world that breaks us or the circumstances of living life fully? What do we gain if we live life and play it safe? Daring to live fully will take us on amazing journeys and provide immeasurable lessons and maybe even some wisdom. Being afraid of being hurt and brokenness, for we are all ultimately hurt and broken as Hemingway shared, is how we grow and thrive beyond the safety of the mundane. How do we dare to leap into life during times such as these? Join Rev. Dr. Marjorie Matty and the congregation at First Parish as we candidly talk about the healing process and what the other side, wholeness might look like.
